Serial Cleaner (Switch) Review

If you are looking for a challenging and creative few hours, Serial Cleaner is a solid choice. There are certainly more complex and less frustrating action-stealth games on the market, but Serial Cleaner’s charm, level design, and delightful aesthetic make it worth sweeping out of your backlog.


Kingdom Come: Deliverance Review

KCD is the definition of a niche RPG, and it wobbles under the weight of its ambition. It is committed to thrust upon the player a lofty, extravagant experience of immersive simulation and realism that most gamers are probably not interested in, but those who are into the complex machinery of RPG systems and interactions will have their hands very full with it and get their money’s worth in both quality and quantity.


Castle of Heart Review

Castle of Heart claims inspiration from old-school action platformers, but ends up just feeling dated. While at first it seems merely mediocre, its repetitive level design and profoundly unsatisfying combat become more and more aggravating as the game stumbles onward. Like the video game equivalent of Troll 2, Castle of Heart can only be enjoyed ironically for its resemblance to long-forgotten bargain bin shovelware.


Paper Wars: Cannon Fodder Devastated Review

Paper War: Cannon Fodder Devastated is a cartoony game which evokes a certain sense of playfulness in its aesthetic. Unfortunately, looking past the art shows that in actuality the game is a shallow romp through the same general level scheme for a couple of hours, with very little to enjoy.


Strikers Edge Review

Strikers Edge has unique mechanics and varied characters guaranteed to provide hours of competitive entertainment. The best parts of this game are during its multiplayer modes, although the single player AI offer up a decent challenge as well. Unfortunately an empty online community detracts from an overall enjoyable experience.


Hunt Down the Freeman Review

With all the quality free mods available for Half-Life 2, you would be borderline insane to waste a penny on such a broken attempt at a game. Don’t buy it, don’t even steal it – it’s not worth your time.


Why Lost Castle Should Stay in Your Backlog

As a fan of roguelike games, I expected to enjoy Lost Castle. With so many items and weapons to choose from, I thought I’d be running through the dungeons repeatedly. Unfortunately, a lack of balance and engaging gameplay, along with a lackluster story, prevents Lost Castle from being better than the sum of its parts. The soundtrack is pretty catchy, though.


Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Review

With Warhammer: Vermintide 2, Fatshark has improved upon their original game in almost every single way. From more enemy types to a slew of new weapons to try out, you’ll have an exhilarating time slaughtering Skaven and Rotblood alike.


DRAGON BALL FighterZ Review

DRAGON BALL FighterZ is an enjoyable fighting game that fans of the franchise will enjoy. The flashy presentation and in universe references are probably the best in any Dragon Ball game to date. Unfortunately, issues with online matchmaking and a boring story mode keep it from being a must own fighting title.


I, Zombie Review

I, Zombie has all of the potential and makings to be a great stealth game on the Switch, with an easy-to-play nature and cartoony visuals. Unfortunately the length and lack of variation leave a feeling of wanting more while also wanting to get it done with as fast as possible.
